TRYING TO CONTROL THE ADDICT USING DRUGS IS A WASTE OF TIME-YOU CANNOT CONTROL AN ADDICT OR AN ALCOHOLIC

Here are some of the things people have done in vain attempts to stop an addict using drugs or an alcoholic drinking:

1. They have asked the addict to promise not to use drugs any more. The addict has

promised - and gone back to using drugs. In just the same way families often ask their alcoholic to swear off drink. He does so - only to go back to drinking.

2. They have thrown away the addict's drug supply or emptied the alcoholic's bottles. The addict has gone out to buy new drugs and the alcoholic has gone out and bought more drink.

3. They have wept, they have threatened, they have coaxed, they have bribed, and they have nagged. The addict has continued to use drugs. The alcoholic has continued to drink.

4. They have asked the family doctor, or the minister, or a friend, or a social worker 'to have a serious talk' with the sick person. The addict has gone on using drugs and the alcoholic has gone on drinking.

There are thousands more schemes, dodges, tricks and other devices that the family tried in growing desperation. Some of them may result in the addict or alcoholic stopping using drink and drugs for a few days or weeks. But in the long run they do not work. They do not work because of one simple fact:

The addict will only stop using drugs when he or she wants to stop - or when somebody makes drug-using so uncomfortable that he or she has to ask for help.

WHAT MAKES AN ADDICT DECIDE TO STOP?

Let's pause here and consider why addicts decide to stop using drugs and get well. Such a decision isn't an easy one for them. Addicts fear withdrawal and they cannot conceive of a life without drugs. So why do they stop taking drugs?
